I suspect that you can find your answer here:


which explains this is not a memory problem. The number of genes
dictates the depth of your dendrogram (=tree).  Since the functions
that work with those objects often use recursion, gene clustering can
easily exceed the default limit on recursions.  You may have success
if you explicitly raise that limit (options("expressions")).

Good luck, Jenny
